The Inaugural [email protected] Public Conference: Dimensions of Legitimacy in Investor-State Dispute Settlement

The Inaugural [email protected] Public Conference: Dimensions of Legitimacy in Investor-State Dispute Settlement

NUS Law (Bukit Timah Campus)
Speaking Engagement

The landscape of investor-state dispute settlement is changing. In 2017, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law conferred a broad mandate on Working Group III to consider possible reform of ISDS.

The progressive agenda was borne from growing concerns over the system and the substance of decision-making in ISDS. To its critics, the repeat appointment of certain decision-makers when investor-state disputes are settled by arbitration and the uneven quality of decisions rendered unite to undermine confidence in the ability of ISDS, in its present form, to adequately safeguard the interests of investors, states and relevant stakeholders.

The inaugural [email protected] Public Conference assembles leading policy-makers, practitioners and academics to discuss the different dimensions of a legitimate, sustainable ISDS. It marks the first time that an Investment Treaty Forum-led conference is held in Singapore.

Jonathan Lim will speak on “Systemic Legitimacy in ISDS."
